Program Overview

Want to experience a semester in a different location while still being able to use your Wildcat or AZ Excellence Scholarship?

The National Student Exchange (NSE) may be the perfect program for you. NSE includes nearly 200 colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U. S. Virgin Islands and all the aid you receive here at the UA can be used at a NSE partner institution. When visiting and searching through the numerous institutions to choose from (including universities in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, etc.), you will learn why more than 100,000 students have taken advantage of this opportunity since NSE’s founding in 1968.
